Destination Adelaide

Adelaide is Australia’s 5th biggest city, with a population of just over 1 million people. As the capital of South Australia, Adelaide is a bustling centre of commerce and local government. The city itself is unique, it’s a ‘planned city’ being arranged in a grid with five squares in the city centre, and a ring of parks surrounding it. It’s easy to navigate around, with two sets of ring roads, bordering the parklands and bypassing the inner city. As the city has grown suburban expansion has taken in many of the original surrounding villages and country towns. Adelaide is known internationally recognised for its exemplary urban planning.

If you are considering a relocation across the ditch, you could do a lot worse than moving to Adelaide. For starters it’s consistently ranked as one of Australia’s most affordable cities, with transport and accommodation options significantly cheaper than Australia’s other major cities. As the festivities capital of Australia, it offers some of country’s best dining experiences, thanks to the diversity of settlers in the region. Within a 90-minute drive of the city you can be in the world-famous wine and food regions of the Barossa Valley, Clare Valley, and McLaren Vale. When you add in some of Australia’s best beaches and beachfronts, the dry Mediterranean climate, superb cultural life, sporting events, festivals, and friendly locals there’s plenty of compelling reasons for kiwis to move to Adelaide.

Shipping Options to Adelaide

Most Ausmove customers use sea freight to send their household goods and personal effects to Adelaide. You should be aware that good planning is important as sea shipments can sometimes take a little longer than to other major Australian cities. There are various options depending on budget, individual needs, and circumstances. These include;

  • Sending your belongings in a shared or groupage container. This is highly recommended if you are on a tight budget or have a smaller shipment. That’s because you only pay your share of the shipping costs. Although this is the slowest shipping option, that’s not always the case with Ausmove. That’s because we have a high frequency of groupage containers to all major Australian cities.
  • Full Container Load (FCL) or sole use container. This is the recommended option if you’re shipping a whole house load or wish to send a vehicle to Adelaide. There are both 20 foot and 40-foot container options. It’s often possible for us to pack and load at residence and take your container straight to the port, without excessive handling. While this option is slightly more expensive, it is generally quicker and can save you money on transit accommodation costs.
  • Airfreight is also a popular method of shipping into Adelaide. This is extremely quick and often used to send a smaller shipment in advance of sea freight. Our offices are perfectly positioned right beside Auckland airport, which speeds up the process even further. It’s particularly popular for customers who have young children or need quick access to their tools of trade, sporting, or office equipment. Many customers use airfreight to reduce the amount of time and cost of a prolonged stay in hotel style transit accommodation.


The security of your personal information is very important in today’s digital world. You don’t want your financial information, passport copies, destination address etc falling into the wrong hands. You can be assured that Ausmove collect, use, disclose and protect your personal information in strict compliance with the New Zealand Privacy Act and high level EU (GDPR) standards.
